Teachers have been dressing up as characters to support our Book Day Event on the 31st of March. Last week they dressed as characters from Mario Puzo’s novel ‘The Godfather’ of which Yr 13 English students study the film version. On the 31st of March – our students will hear from people who are writers, poets, cartoonists/ illustrators. The day will end with each WA class dressing up one of their classmates as a book character for our grand parade! Reading is so vital for your child’s success in the world of education and Book Event is one of many activities we have planned for the year to inspire our students and whanau to read!
